it for the country, but only if democrats are willing to make reforms on entitledment programs, medicare and medicaid and social security. that is big if. good morning, hope your turkey was great. martha: good morning, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. you've got this. congressman peter king and now senator bob corker say they will ignore the decades old pledge that was signed by 241 house members and senators. he says he believes it is a huge game-changer. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt the only pledge we should make to each other is to avoid becoming greece. republicans should put revenue on the table. we're this far in debt. we don't generate enough revenue. capping deductions will help generate revenue. raising tack rates will hurt job creation. bill: this is the heart of the matter. stuart varney, host of "varney & company". morning to you, sir? >> this is a real shift. one of the two sides had some movement in their position on the tax side of the debate. that side is the republican side. as you heard there from senator lindsey graham, other, and other republican, they are now prepared to a
the fiscal cliff contain no medicare, medicaid, and social security benefit cuts. it puts them at odds with the president who has said everything should be on the table, including entitlements, senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. >> we want to save these programs and i understand the dilemma the president and the majority leader have. their hard left doesn't want to change anything ever. >> reporter: but the top senate democrat harry reid says republicans are the ones dragging their heels. there's been little progress with the republicans, which is a disappointment to me. they've talked some happy talk about doing revenues, but we only have a couple weeks to get something done. >> reporter: republicans point out that medicare and medicaid are the largest future drivers of the debt. they say they won't agree to increased revenue from taxes unless they get entitlement cuts as well. scott, it's safe to say there are going to be people on the right and left howling mad at no matter what this deal looks like. >> pelley: nancy, thank you very much. one idea they're looking at is scalin
in medicare that might set off gaps in coverage, senior citizens not getting health care coverage. there you go. they're saying to put everything on the table but when you get in the details that's why they haven't come to a deal because the devil will be in the details, jenna. jenna: maybe they start with a salute and end with a handshake. ed, great to see you report great to see you. jenna: thank you very much. jon: several republican lawmakers are toning down their criticism of u.n. ambassador susan rice and her handling of the deadly attack on the consulate in libya. ambassador rice was under fire for appearances on the television immediately after the attack where she blamed it on the youtube video. many vocal critics, like senator john mccain are turning up the heat on president obama and the state department. >> the problem is the president of the united states in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terrorist attack. he hadn't. jon: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington. she has more on all of this. so this shift in focus to the
the war on poverty. he launches so many great society programs, medicare. so the first year, let's say, 1965 or let's say the first seven months, you say, this is a man who's going to leave his mark on history. you know, they say the moral arch bends justly, but it bends slowly. i didn't say that. martin luther king says that. but you really feel that johnson tries to bend it. >> what i was struck by, when you watch some of the old footage, the language johnson used was a kind of language almost no american president had ever used. it was so full of idealism, it was about ending poverty, lifting up every american, providing everyone with education. it is the most expansive domestic, you know, idealism, that i can recall any president ever having. >> you know, and people working with him could hardly believe it, like richard goodwin who was speech writer for kennedy, then johnson brings him on board, asks him basically about civil rights, you know, and johnson says, you know, referring to the time he was 20 years old and he was teaching the mexican/american kids in a little town in sout

thing when it comes to entitlement spending. they want cuts, serious cuts in medicare, medicaid. will the liberal base of the democratic party go along with the president if he puts that into the deal? >> probably not. and part of the reason is because the democrats are in such a much more commanding position. you're talking about medicare, medicaid, social security. these are programs that are popular and working. if you look at social security, cbl says this program is solvent until 2038. you have a hard time convincing ordinary people there's some big emergency there. the tax cuts for the wealthy are budget busters. you have a hard time getting ordinary people to understand why we should take a chainsaw to middle class programs that are working, that are popular. to get republicans to do something that right now they're going to have to do anyway once january 1 comes. >> what will the democrats do to bring in the republicans to convince the republicans they're really going to cut spending? >> i think the spending cuts are on the table now with regard to defense. which i think
